Danny Zelisko Presents Alabama Shakes on its North American headline tour at Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque on Monday, July 15th, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. 

The band wraps up its spring headline tour this Saturday, March 16, and will head to Latin America later this month for a series of shows, including performances at Lollapalooza in Brazil and Chile. Alabama Shakes will also play numerous summer festivals, including Firefly in Dover, Delaware, London’s Hard Rock Calling and the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

In the weeks following the GRAMMY® Awards and the band’s appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and “Austin City Limits,” Alabama Shakes’ debut album, Boys & Girls (ATO Records), sold 100,000 additional copies. It is now RIAA Certified Gold. “As for carving out space and winning new listeners at The GRAMMYS, [vocalist] Brittany Howard probably converted the most folks through the sheer power of performance," said The New Yorker while Rolling Stone observed: "Alabama Shakes Rock 'SNL' & bring Southern grooves to Studio 8H stage."

Alabama Shakes – comprising vocalist/guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, drummer Steve Johnson and bassist Zac Cockrell – are based in Athens, Alabama. The group was named Best Touring Band at the Pollstar Awards, Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Association’s Honors and Awards ceremony and Best New Artist of the Year at the Triple A Radio Conference. Alabama Shakes was nominated for three GRAMMY awards, a BRIT and an NME Award.
